Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers and Other StoriesAlyssa Wong
science fiction, fantasy, horror, short stories
From the award-winning author of "Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers" and "You'll Surely Drown Here If You Stay" ― the first ever story collection from the Nebula, World Fantasy, and Locus Award-winning Alyssa Wong.
The collection includes 6 award-nominated/winning short pieces, two flash fictions published only digitally to date, and five entirely new short stories.
In the vein of Carmen Maria Machado and Kelly Link - Alyssa Wong's writing is both intensely familiar and astonishingly singular. With stories seemingly ripped from the headlines ("Live Stream") or fashioned from uncanny dream-worlds ("Salt Cycles"), Wong's voice will compel and delight all who dip into this stunning collection.
Alyssa Wong is a Nebula-winning, Shirley Jackson-,Campbell-, and World Fantasy Award-nominated author, shark aficionado, and 2013 graduate of the Clarion Writers’ Workshop. Her work has appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Strange Horizons, Tor.com, Uncanny Magazine, Lightspeed Magazine, Nightmare Magazine, and Black Static, among others. She is an MFA candidate at North Carolina State University and a member of the Manhattan-based writing group Altered Fluid.
